British star Mark Strong plays Brooklyn longshoreman Eddie Carbone in Ivo van Hove’s Olivier Award-winning production of “A View from the Bridge,” now in previews at the Lyceum Theatre.
Arthur Miller’s 1955 family tragedy marks the Broadway debut for Strong and van Hove, a Belgian director known for bold, stripped-back, emotionally charged takes on classics.
“Ivo is like a swan,” says Strong. “He’s very serene above the surface but under the flippers are going. He does an enormous amount of preparation.”
Strong discusses his career, being in New York and why he thinks Daniel Craig — a longtime friend and godfather of one of Strong’s sons — will make a great Iago next year Off-Broadway in “Othello.”
